Low Carb Reading: Wheat Belly
Wheat Belly – required reading in the low-carb library
There are tons of resources out there that support and give you insight into the low-carb world. You can’t read them all at once, and in the new Low Carb Reading category here on Hoboken411, we’ll start with one of the best places to begin your journey: Wheat Belly, by William Davis, MD.
“Lose the wheat, lose the weight” is the book’s tagline – and Dr. Davis couldn’t be more right.
Dr. Davis not only talks about the obvious (how bad excess carbs are for the human body), but adds immense depth about wheat in particular. The history, the genetic modifications and the incredible prevalence in your local supermarket (aisles of breads, cereals, even sauces and more places you never knew).
He also beats the drum in opposition to the whole mass-media fear of fat – and how it’s the carbs you should be watching (especially in combination with other foods.)
It’s a great informative read (including many wheat-free recipes), and should be considered an essential part of your low-carb bookshelf.
